Back to Reality. UGH!!!

I haven't blogged in a couple of weeks and here is the reason.

Steve and I just returned from a two week...count em....TWO WEEK CRUISE in the Caribbean...with no phones, or Internet except for emailing the kids a few times.

It was wonderful. We did have our blog-worthy moments which I will attempt to post over the next week or so...some funny...some frustrating...some romantic....AWWWW!
Picture from Formal Night
I would just like to express my love and gratitude to my hubby of 23.5 years for planning this wonderful time away.

Steve,
the guy who wore my pants, wrote me a love letter for every day we were gone. It was quite a scene to be sitting at dinner reading a letter with tears streaming down my face, mixed with laughter and smiles...and my heart expanding so much, you could see it through my clothing.

What a man I married. To plan, think, write, search our 23 years together and put into words all those thoughts, feelings, and memories.(NOW...all the females reading this will forward to the men in their lives with the subject line reading...HINT! HINT! )

AND I would like to say thanks to my mom and dad for keeping Brianna for two weeks...taking her to Amish country...letting her bake and bake and cook and cook...the pumpkin pies and brownies were delicious...and keeping up with her and all of her planning and ideas...and encouraging her school work.

I was nervous about leaving her for two whole weeks but she told me, "MOM...I am going to be with Grandma and Grandpa. I will have a blast! You know they cater to me and I get whatever I ask for! I get spoiled!"

And that she did. AND that is what Grandparents are for! Thanks for being great ones.


More later...I have laundry to do!!!!!!

Glad to hear you had a great time! You deserve it! AND your hubby was always good at that kind of stuff...I remember the Africa trip the guys took and the little things he left behind for you and the kids...

Wow! You look incredible!

Mom said...

Steve, thank you for loving and cherishing our daughter. What a great example you are for Weston and Brianna, demonstrating the importance of loving your wife, and showing them that a great marriage takes some work and sacrifice for you.. (sacrifice in leaving Brianna for two whole weeks, but joy for us to have her here.)

Love you all.. Looking forward to the rest of the blog.....Mom
